Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Complete Series is a DVD box-set of all 7 seasons of TNG, released in 2007 to coincide with the series' 20th Anniversary. It contains all the original discs from the previous TNG individual season box-set releases, plus a brand new bonus disc. It was released on Region 1 and 2.
This was the third time the entire series was packaged together in one DVD box-set. The first was the Region 2 exclusive Borg Mega Cube in 2003. The second was the Seasons 1-7 boxset, which was released on Region 1 and 2 in 2004.
The episodes on the discs, and their arrangement among them, are identical to the TNG season box-sets (including the Best Buy exclusive discs). There is also an additional disc for more special features.
Please refer to the following pages for the first 48 discs' episode arrangement.
- TNG Season 1 DVD
- TNG Season 2 DVD
- TNG Season 3 DVD
- TNG Season 4 DVD
- TNG Season 5 DVD

The bonus disc includes the following special features:
- "The Next Generation's Impact: 20 Years Later" (27 minutes, directed by Stephen R. Wolcott, hosted by John de Lancie)
- "The Next Generation's Legacy: 2007" (26 minutes, directed by Stephen R. Wolcott)
- "Star Trek Visual Effects Magic: A Roundtable Discussion" (25 minutes, directed by Stephen R. Wolcott)
- The Next Generation's Impact: 20 Years Later at the Internet Movie Database
- The Next Generation's Legacy: 2007 at the Internet Movie Database
- Star Trek Visual Effects Magic: A Roundtable Discussion at the Internet Movie Database
Both the Region 1 and 2 releases feature identical packaging and contents.
The 49 DVDs are spread across three sets of double-sided green disc trays stacked together, and joined by an adhesive strip down one edge of each stack. This differs from the other versions of TNG's complete series box-sets in that it does not group each season together separately. The three sets of DVD stacks are encased in a cardboard tray and plastic slip cover. A small folded information sheet is included with trivia and season information. A full episode breakdown is not included, but the episode titles are printed on the discs. Booklets from previous releases of the individual seasons are not included.
